ANCAP first for CX-9

ANCAP first for CX-9

The old Mazda CX-9 was never Australian New Car Assessment rated, but the new one has gone straight to the top of the class.

The seven-seater SUV did well in each of the destructive tests and achieved a five-star rating.

AA motoring services general manager Stella Stocks says a five-star rating in New Zealand’s highly competitive market is an added advantage because buyers are increasingly looking for this certification.

The Mazda CX-9 comes equipped with a number of crash prevention technologies including blind spot monitoring (BMS) and electronic stability control (ESC) which help the driver stay in control of the vehicle in the event of a slide or swerve, while trailer stability control and emergency brake assist (EBA) help prevent nose to tail crashes.
It joins the ranks of Mazda’s other five-star rated CX models, including the CX-3 and the CX-5.
